Some of Hollywood's biggest names are joining the ONE World Campaign to call for a global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kicking off on May 21 with Julia Roberts, the actress turned over her social media platforms to Dr Anthony Fauci as part of the #PassTheMic campaign.
For three weeks other celebrities - including Hugh Jackman, Sarah Jessica Parker and Millie Bobby Brown - will give their platforms to experts to help share facts, data and science as a new strategy to end the global health crisis.
“We need global cooperation and action to fight this pandemic—especially for the people, communities and countries that are least able to withstand the shock. Because none of us are safe until all of us are safe," ONE Campaign President and CEO Gayle Smith said.
Roberts said, “It’s my honour and complete joy to #PassTheMic to Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the @NIAID at @NIHgov. He’s probably one of the most important people in the world right now.
“If you don’t know him, he’s the man making sure we get the most accurate, critical information about #COVID19. Things like how we can keep ourselves and our communities safe. Today he’s taking over my account to shed light on the importance of a global response to this pandemic, the latest treatment research and the power of staying cautiously optimistic.”
Roberts also interviewed Fauci in her Instagram Story.
